Category: Discretionary


Target dateTitle

RAG Status : AMBER

Report by Ben Armstrong for February 2016

Achievements in Last Period

  • Produced a draft costing incorporating projected staff numbers for a pilot of the system and full rollout


  • The project delivery date passed but work is still underway to confirm the recommendations with CSG incorporating the costings; as a result the project sponsor has approved revised dates for project delivery and closure so the project is reporting an Amber status this month as the dates moved back by a month; it will revert to a Green status next month provided there are no further delays.  The project sponsor also approved a 5 day increase in the budget with the new estimate being 35 days.

Next Steps

  • Obtain feedback from CSG on recommendations and confirm implementation approach


CSG009 (In-year)

RIR Systems Review

Category: Sponsor Funded


Target dateTitle
11-Mar-2016Project closure


Report by Dawn Holmes for February 2016

Achievements this period

  • The additional analysis interviews requested by the Project Sponsor have taken place
  • The draft summary paper was updated with an executive summary and recommendations
  • The revised summary paper has been distributed


  • The planned project closure date has been delayed due to resource conflicts for the Project Sponsor's time preventing formal sign-off of deliverables.  The closure date has been moved out by 2 weeks so the project has been place on AMBER.

Next steps

  • Project closure
